(Minghui.org) The 26th SCI (Service Civil International) Penang Peace Run, an event to benefit special social groups, was held in Taman Perbandaran Pulau Pinang Park on September 6, 2015.
A new activity was introduced this year, the SCI Penang Peace Walk. The Falun Dafa Association of Malaysia was invited to lead the 1.5 km Peace Walk, which was in addition to the regular 6 km runs that featured 6 male and 3 female age groups..
The Falun Dafa Association participated in the event by featuring the Divine Land Marching Band, a Dragon Dance, a Falun Dafa Exercise Demonstration, and a Waist Drum Performance.
Organizing Chairman of the event Mr. R. M. Ravichandar thanked the Falun Dafa Association at the awards ceremony: “Please give the Falun Dafa group a warm round of applause! They traveled a long distance from Kuala Lumpur to participate in today's World Peace Day event. We also remember that they came last year, too. I invite Mr. Athimulam Arjunan, president of the SCI Penang Chapter, to present the Certificate of Appreciation to Ms. Linda Su. Thank you, Falun Dafa!” said Mr. Ravichandar.
“We wish to see you again at all peace events!” he added.
Dr. Anwar Fazal, a leading international civil society activist who has contributed much in areas of consumerism, health, human rights, and social ethics, participated in the Peace Walk.
“This is truly beautiful! Falun Dafa's performance is outstanding. Music is an important aspect of life, as is order. I am very happy to have them participate in this event with the many other groups. This is very good. We are moving toward better social awareness.”
